  • Description

    Description

    We are a small community of 6 adults, 4 children and 2 dogs, on a 23 acre property 15 min south of Boston Bar, in the Fraser Canyon, BC.

    Dates can be flex if needed.

    - accommodation would be an RV, or camping if you prefer.
    - some shared meals, but you will have your own kitchen
    - There are four cousins on the property ages 8 to 11.

    Tasks:
    - Getting gardens and landscaping prepared for the growing season
    - Renovation help (siding, window install, trim, painting I will guide you)
    - A little childcare, like games (for the right person), helping to prepare meals.

    You will help make quite the transformation in a short time, that generations will enjoy into the future.

    We look forward to meeting you, learning and enjoying some time together, to create a beautiful space

    Best,
    Ben
